Smoke comes out of my oven when I bake chicken breast fillets. As soon as I open the oven door I can see some smoke escaping, and 30 seconds later both fire alarms are going off. This has never happened when baking other foods (pies, cakes, etc..).
I've been trying to figure out what it is that's causing all the smoke. The ingredients are...
- 1kg frozen chicken breast fillets
- 4 teaspoons soy sauce
- 8 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- granulated garlic
- italian spice
I bake the chicken on two baking sheets lined with foil. I set the oven to 375 and let it bake for about 23 minutes. I don't bother letting the oven preheat.
Last week I came across some information that said extra virgin olive oil smokes at 375, so today I dropped the temperature down to 350 and tried to cook for a few minutes longer. The fire alarms still went off.
